trusties, but, trust, panama corporations would raise red flags with any tax authority. it is what mitt romney says about this, you say, that is of concern. nick shaxson? >> yes. this is a very important point. people seek offshore tax havens as a shady little island somewhere. one of the things i explore in my book, "treasure island's," since the 1970's, the u.s. itself has been turning itself quite deliberately into a tax haven in its own right. attracting foreign money, a lot of illicit for money from overseas through offering things such as special tax exemptions and secrecy -- financial secrecy. delaware and nevada and wyoming, offering very, very low cost, strong secrecy through corporations. this is profoundly difficult thing. one of many vehicles through which this illicit money can come in is the private equity business. there is no requirement on private equity companies to enforce the tax laws of other countries. a filing i am covered during my research -- i am covered during my research showed the strange entities in the bahamas and panama, all of these places are renowned t
years as we see the kinds of situations we found ourselves in. i can go back to the invasion of panama in 1989 and go forward. we realize just having a military battle that you want is not the end of the game,. perhaps he should have done more in the beginning to avoid that battle for having won the battle, how do we keep the peace and preserve the peace tax would have to be careful when we talk about these terms such as smart power or hard power or soft power. i am reminded of a conversation i had with the former archbishop of canterbury. in 2003. you might have been there. it was on the eve of the gulf war. the archbishops stood up and said," general powell, why don't we just use soft power?" it was a critique of what we are getting ready to do. it was not soft power that rescued britain from hitler. it was hard power and you have to have that. but when we won world war two with hard power, we switched to soft power in asia and germany to create democracy. the importance of this coalition that makes what we are doing so very important is that we understand that we needed all but we h
salesman for jimmy carter for the panama canal treaty. you are talking about guts there. >> and it takes a lot of them, pat. and believe me, it does. >> also following you around when you were running for president was a dangerous thing to do but i did it anyway. >> but if i paid a dollar for "news ""i would put out a headline president cry baby because he can't take responsibility. he got everything he wanted passed and he blames everybody. why doesn't he take responsibility? >> have you ever known a president that doesn't blame the congress for what they don't get put through? and what are they doing? >> he didn't need the republican congress. >> let me ask bob the question. the news week, where they come from and rest of it, would they dare say barack obama, he has been a wimp, maybe they reached too far and do all these things like they did to george h.w. bush and like they are doing to romney. the left is being a caricature of itself. all the rotten comments and all the rest of it, i think they democrat their own credibility. those magazines used to be excellent, we all read them. >
. the times says quote, most of the foreign investors' money came through corporations registered in panama. then known for tax advantages and unusual banking secrecy. but it didn't matter to romney where the money was coming from, he kne
corporations regist registered in panama which actually gave very preferential tax treatment. you didn't have to pay a whole lot of taxes. and so this story actually highlights the nebulous world of offshore accounts, tax perks for very wealthy folks that have been dogging mitt romney and his campaign now for a couple of weeks. >> there's the headline there of the article that you just mentioned, bain capital started with help of offshore investors. we should note here, of course, the romney campaign responding today, their response, here it is in part, quote, president obama's own jobs council advocating more foreign direct investment in the u.s. to help grow the economy, something president obama himself has been unable to do, as illustrated by the recent downgrades in gdp forecast. how these investors chose to invest is their decision, not bain capital's. do you think, mark murray, do you think any of this adds fuel to the fire over romney's tenure at bai? >> you know, craig, i think the danger for romney campaign is there's almost going to be a drip-drip nature. you're going to have artic
the mud, look what happened in latin america with columbia and panama, allies of ours in the free trade agreements. there is no strong foreign policy coming out of the administration. i don't think at the end of the day they want to campaign on foreign policy either, because it's one of weakness. it is why we have so much instability around the world because people don't know where the united states stands. we need to stand up for those who are fighting for their freedom. we need to do what is right by the people of the united states and around the world. >> shannon: you are running for senate. you have a primary august 14 and then hope to go head to head -- moving beyond that. the senate very much in play to a lot of folks. but do you think it's realistic for the g.o.p. to pick up a significant number of seats this is fall? >> i do, for a number of reasons. one, the economy is in such bad shape. it has to do with the policies that have come out from president obama and lock-step liberals that think that government is the answer to all of our problems. when you have a weak foreign polic
. most financial investors money came from corporations registered in panama, then one of the world's most secretive business jurisdictions, offering a confidentiality intense advantages. previously unreleased details and other public records -- bain capital was emeshed in the largely opaque world of international high finance from its inception. romney faces increasing criticism for his own involvement in exotic offshore investment funds. that is front page of the chicago tribune this morning. and the lead story in the miami herald is -- in congress, few released their congress. nancy pelosi was an phatic. mitt romney the's to release more than two years of his tax return, it makes him unfit to win confirmation as a member of the president's cabinet, let alone hold the high office himself. harry reid went further. his refusal to make public tax record makes him unfit to be a dogcatcher. they do not think that standard of transparency should apply to them. the democratic leaders of the senate and house are among hundreds of senators and representatives from both parties who refused
